Monstrous predators of the sky, Crypt Flayers flock together in a beating of dark wings and hissing maws. Enemies are snatched up by their sudden strikes and torn asunder while the creatures’ keening call is enough to break a warrior’s spirit.
A unit of Crypt Flayers has any number of models, each armed with a Death Scream and Piercing Talons.
The leader of this unit is a Crypt Infernal. Add 1 to the Attacks characteristic of a Crypt Infernal’s Piercing Talons.
Death Scream: Crypt Flayers can unleash an ultrasonic cry that can kill or debilitate their victims.
Do not use the attack sequence for an attack made with a Death Scream. Instead roll 2D6. Subtract 2 if the target unit is more than 3" from the attacking model. If the result is higher than the target unit’s Bravery characteristic, the target unit suffers a number of mortal wounds
equal to the difference between its Bravery characteristic and the result.
Skewering Strike: Sometimes a Crypt Flayer will strike with such force that the victim is skewered upon its piercing talons.
If the unmodified hit roll
for an attack made with Piercing Talons is 6, that attack inflicts 1 mortal wound
on the target in addition to any normal damage.
